From this study (1 month ago):
I am menopausal. Some night sweats, emotional issues, occasional depression. I am usually at a HR of 80 and sometimes I have pvcs and pacs (tested benign). I have occasional tachycardia. Recently I have begun having spells where I feel light-headed, kind of like I need to think to breathe,(like when I was on Vicodin) and my pulse rate goes down to 60 with some pvcs. I have NEVER had a slow heart rate. Everyone in my family has Tachycardia with pvc's (an electrical genetic defect I guess).

Polly Jones on Jun, 3, 2014:
My mouth is so dry that I am not producing saliva. I used to be able to lean over the sink, open my mouth, and saliva would drain from my inner cheek ducts into the sink. I have been using the Amlodipine 4 months. Without proper salivary flow, some vital digestive enzymes are missing, and the teeth don't get remineralized.I have a choice of asking for Salagen, yet another drug, to help with the problem, or stopping the Blood pressure altogether. I can't deal with cotton mouth.
From this study (1 month ago):
It has been suggested that I might have carcinoid tumours or carcinoid syndrome.
